Vibrant colours will feature in Whistlewood Gallery’s Winter Salon exhibition over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June.

More than 80 paintings by leading Aboriginal artists and rising stars from five regions will be on show, selected by Whistlewood curators Susan McCulloch OAM and Emily McCulloch Childs. They include multi-hued paintings of women’s ceremonies by Utopia artists Emily Pwerle, Barbara Weir and Charmaine Pwerle; jewel-like landscapes and bush medicine stories by Ampilatwatja artists of the Eastern desert; glowing works by Western desert artists from Yuendumu and Papunya; new canvases by leading artists of the APY Lands; and striking monochromatic and pastel-coloured paintings.

For the unique Art Parade presentation that opens the exhibition, works will be grouped into themes according to colour and paraded while Ms McCulloch provides commentary. “For many people the range of colours used by Aboriginal artists is a revelation,” she explains. “Many of the artists live in very arid areas – but even there the colours of the land, sky, trees and salt plains is of dazzling intensity.”

“Many colours also have special meanings for Aboriginal people and you see this in paintings as well. I remember the response of one leading artist from the Western desert years ago when I asked him why the painters in his community had come to use so many brilliant colours. He laughed as though it was really obvious, gestured widely and said ‘look, look! Colour is all around us’.”

The Art Parade is on Saturday, June 11, at 2.30pm, places limited and bookings essential at Exhibition open Sunday, June 12, and Monday, June 13,10.30am – 4pm.
